The right choice of modern contemporary placemats

Options for and elegant table

To give a different or fresh touch to your table, one of the types of tablemats designs we can recommend would be the contemporary placemats. This way your table will be laid out in an elegant way, and you will be happy to have made the right choice.

This is the ideal way you can enhance the charm of your table, so that your dinner guests will be satisfied and have a pleasant evening.

Colours and designs of contemporary modern placemats

The design of the table and therefore the design of the tablemat will vary depending on the type of dining table, because you will not want to choose the same tablemats, or coasters, if the table is round, rectangular or square. Next, it is important to identify the type of meal that is going to be held, and for more formal events we would choose a more appropriate traditional tablemat, but we will choose a more casual tablemat design for informal meals.

For every meal there is a set of suitable modern and contemporary placemats, and each and every one of them can be found at our website. We have a lot of experience in setting kitchen or dining tables, so we know we have just what you need.

Tips for selecting contemporary placemats

Since we are used to the inevitability of tablemats getting food on them, we recommend that after the meal you don't waste time and quickly wipe them with a damp cloth or wet paper towel, so that you can remove the stains more easily. After that you can store them away without any problem and they will be ready to use the next time.

You should know that for these types of place mats it is definitely not recommended to immerse them in water as you can wear them out and quickly damage the materials and the surface of the mats, particularly the underneath of the cork placemats.

If you have any questions you can contact us, and we also recommend you to browse through our website and see the many options open to you to surprise your guests with an elegantly laid out table. With options that include special packs of placemats and coasters to help you find the ideal design to match the decor of your dining room

Bring style and colour to your room

Contemporary placemats are a great way to add colour and style to your home. If you're tired of the way your kitchen or dining room is looking and you want to give it a fresh style then one solution is to buy some bright and cheerful tablemats. In our range of contemporary placemats there is a wide variety of mainly hardboard, wood or vinyl styles to choose from. They also come in various shapes: rectangular, square or round that will fit the typical, standard size plates used in the UK.

What to consider when buying contemporary and modern placemats?


You don’t need to pay too much for some stylish placemats, with sets starting from around £25 to over £60 for some of the UK made Lady Clare range. Given the visual impact a set of placemats can create for the decorative mood of your kitchen or dining room table, then they represent great value for money. Without considering the amount you save by not damaging your expensive dining table.


With a few size options available to you, other than the standard rectangular shaped UK size of around 30cm x 23xm, it is worth considering some of the larger contemporary placemats. A size that is usually more popular in the USA or Europe than in the UK but which is a convenient alternative as they hold the diner’s cutlery as well as their dinner plate and glass.

The idea is that your contemporary or modern placemats can help to enhance the look and feel of your room, so they can be as bright and showy or as neutral and subtle as you like.

Traditional mixed with modern designs

A mix of traditional and modern placemats from the range of contemporary designs by classic tablemats manufacturers such as Plymouth Pottery or Pimpernel. One advantage of this type of rigid, cork backed place mats is they have the proven track record of functioning as robust table top protectors for over half a century.

Add in the selection of modern designs and they become one of the best choices when looking for a perfect set of contemporary placemats and coasters. Stylish colours and patterns combined with the functionality of a rigid, hardboard structure will be the ideal option for bringing a bright and modern appearance to any dining room. This type of tablemat is also an excellent choice for gift giving.
